Question: Believe it or not, you've been missed, my friend. So welcome back! Got anything juicy on Gilmore Girls?

Answer: I believe it! And yes, here's a little follow-up to an AA teaser I planted pre-press tour. Milo Ventimiglia (Jess) is thisclose to a deal to return for one episode during November sweeps. And I know what you're thinking: Milo previously said the only way he'd ever make tracks back to Stars Hollow was if Jess were being killed off. Well, Amy Sherman-Palladino apparently offered him the next-best thing redemption. "I've been told Jess would not be a jerk," Ventimiglia says. "He'd actually be the hero."
